Works of fiction, and personal favorites at that, naturally vary from person to person. Facebook recently offered a challenge of 10 days of favorite films and then 10 days of music albums. I took up the challenge and nominated others. Not many friends took up the challenge which was a disappointment. So, since this is my blog, and I’ve always been an avid reader, I had the idea of creating my own one day list of personal favorite works of fiction, followed soon by a list of personal favorite works of non-fiction.
As the author of Lee Marvin Point Blank, I can tell you that non-fiction is a much more preferred genre. So, coming up with this list of fiction was no easy task. I added no comments to each title other than just the book cover image itself. I certainly could give details and anecdotes to each one but I think it best to simply let the titles speaks for themselves.
Anyway, the only prerequisite I made for myself is that it has to be something I’ve read more than once for my own enjoyment and consequently has stood the test of time. Since I still own most of these titles, the scans below are almost all from my own often read personal collection. So, without further ado, my list, in order of preference….
